The Joy of Less

Ever feel like you’re drowning in stuff? Between the clutter at home and the mental load you carry, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Many have been in that boat, and it’s not a fun ride. But what if the key to a more fulfilling life is actually less, not more?

For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.

– 1 Timothy 6:7-8 NIV

The Bible reminds us that we came into this world with nothing, and we’ll leave with nothing. It’s a humbling thought, isn’t it? How often do we get caught up in the pursuit of more – more to do, more to accomplish, more to just store away – only to find that it leaves us feeling empty?

Simplify your life in a way that makes room for more of God.

So, let’s talk about embracing the joy of less. Imagine clearing out the clutter, not just in your home but also in your heart. What does it look like to simplify your life in a way that makes room for more of God? Maybe it’s decluttering your schedule to spend more time in prayer, saying no more often to give yourself room to breathe, or perhaps it’s letting go of material possessions that have become idols.

Will this be your moment to reset and refocus? You’re not alone; we’re in this together, learning to find contentment in simplicity. So go ahead, take that first step toward decluttering your life. As you do, you’ll find that making room for less creates space for so much more – more peace, more joy and a deeper connection with Christ.
